Commercial development


Commercial development is at the heart of our construction practice. We understand that achieving maximum value whilst mitigating risk is vital to the success of a development. We work across the development spectrum, alongside landowners, developers, funders, investors and the construction supply chain, addressing the market issues that affect their business objectives and providing the advice and support required to ensure that those objectives are realised.

We take time to understand our client's business and their priorities and work with them to develop an appropriate procurement and delivery strategy that suits the particular requirements of the transaction, thereby avoiding many of the pitfalls associated with the all too common "one size fits all" approach.

Our award winning national team handles a wide variety of projects from the development of multi-story office blocks in the City of London and cultural heritage sites to multi-phased mixed used regeneration schemes, iconic leisure and entertainment venues and hospitals and care homes. Our full service offering means that our highly experienced team can help you with all the construction and procurement aspects of the development cycle; from advising on possible procurement strategies at project inception, pro-actively engaging with all tiers of the supply chain through the tender process, establishing contractual arrangements that meet project objectives and embed behaviours that foster efficiency and collaborative working and minimise disputes.

Our lawyers – many of whom have worked in the sector – have experience of advising across the development spectrum, in both the private and public sectors. This broad industry experience underpins our knowledge of what is "market" and our pragmatic and effective approach to negotiation and problem solving, thereby allowing our clients the freedom to concentrate on their priorities.
